    Hi all
    Can someone advise me on the best pay as you go (ie local rates after 6 and weekends) ISP for dialup in the Uk? I currently use freeserve.

    Cheers

    I suggest Virgin for customer service, or Orange for coverage and price.

    I have been on orange, now on virgin, but am about to change back.

    He's asking for a dial-up ISP, not a cell phone provider.

    "ISP for dialup in the Uk" - I thought that bit was quite clear although admittedly "pay as you go" is a trade name of orange which i by coincidence i also use own dispite the b**tards putting the text messages up to f***ing 12p :mad: <rant rave scream> and stop them being only 5p with a £50 voucher :mad:

    Anyway back to the matter at hand so the current recommendation is virgin then.. .do they provide a free pop email too ???

    And as for Freenetname I never heard of them before :confused:

    Hi I created a account with the computerowner ISP as you recommended but i have found it be very unreliable :( True it connects at a faster rate than freeserve but after the first couple of pages browsed it can no longer connect to new pages and frequently times out :(
